Translated as ‘The Stable’, Chalet Écurie was once just that. This beautiful old Savoie building is over 130 years old and its recent conversion to a luxury ski chalet is a work of art. Retaining the old beams and stonework, the interior is bright, airy and spacious but still cosy. Beneath the labyrinthine latticework timber eaves a spectacular aged wood chimney falls between the rafters over a roaring central fireplace; faux fur throws and rugs are prevalent throughout the chalet bringing texture and colour to proceedings whilst the light floods in through the double height windows.
The four en-suite bedrooms in this luxury ski chalet have been given a stylish makeover with classy throws and scatter cushions adding further colour and warmth. You will appreciate this most when tea and coffee is brought to you each morning by your own friendly staff. After a hearty French breakfast, your chauffeur will drop you at the slopes for an exhilarating day cruising the pistes of the Three Valleys ski area before collecting you once more and serving afternoon tea and coffee back at your luxury ski chalet in St Martin de Belleville. Relax by the fire with a glass of bubbly recounting the day’s activities as your expert chef rustles up culinary masterpiece for your impending delectation.
Tucked away in this spectacular luxury ski chalet under the timber canopy made by ancient craftsman whilst watching the snow fall silently outside, you will soon feel very much at home and not wishing to be anywhere else.
Standing proud in the heart of the small hamlet of Villarabout, a short chauffeur drive up the hill from the village of St Martin de Belleville, Chalet Abode is aptly named. Immaculately converted from an old building, it is an impeccably designed luxury ski chalet with a warm and cosy feel throughout its elegant living areas and all four en-suite bedrooms.
The open fireplace provides the centrepiece to the magnificent double-height living area nestling nicely in the eaves of this luxury ski chalet offering views over the dinkiest church you’ll ever see and abounding valley beyond.
Wonky beams and intricate stonemasonry make up the physical framework of Chalet Abode, the fine dining from the highly trained chef and attention to detail from the friendly and discreet but attentive staff add that je ne sais quoi. You will be spoiled rotten here and rightly so; with champagne upon arrival, coffee in bed each morning, afternoon tea and cake, gourmet dinner and quality wines and beers at your beck and call, a week in Chalet Abode will be one for you to remember and call your other home year after year.
